This basic fish pie is quite often on our table. Fish is good (tasty as well as healthy) and this one has 3 different types to enjoy. As the cherry on the top the whole creamy fish is hidden by mashed potatoes and cheese. Who wouldn’t love that? 🙂

Fish pie dished with courgettes and sweetcorn

 

Ingredients

for the mash:

  • 1kg potatoes
  • knob of butter
  • splash of milk

for the sauce:

  • 25 g butter
  • 25 g flour
  • 4 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 400 ml milk
  • 1 pack fish pie mix (cod, salmon, smoked haddock)
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • a small bunch chives, finely snipped
  • handful frozen sweetcorn and peas
  • cheese, grated

Method

Portion: 4
Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C.
  2. To make the mash boil the potatoes in a saucepan and, when cooked, drain and mash with some milk and butter. Season to taste.
  3. Meanwhile, in another pan heat the butter and cook with the flour and spring onions, stirring regularly, for a couple of minutes. Gradually whisk in the milk using a balloon whisk. Bring to the boil, stirring to avoid sticking at the bottom of the pan. Cook for a few minutes until thickened.
  4. Take off the heat and stir in some cheese, fish, mustard, chives, sweetcorn and peas.
  5. Spoon into an ovenproof dish, add the mashed potato on top and sprinkle with grated cheese.
  6. Pop in the oven for 20 – 25 mins or until golden.
